We all know how important it is to stay well hydrated especially during the summer heat.
But it’s not always easy to get in those 8 to 10 glasses each day, is it?
Some of you may not even like the taste of water.
I’ve discovered a refreshing summer drink that is easy to make and have in the fridge.
To a 2 quart glass pitcher (<-affiliate link) add:
- 1 medium (or two small) cucumbers, thinly sliced
- ½ of one lemon, thinly sliced
- a small handful of mint leaves
- 1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger
Fill the pitcher with cold water and place in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
The clean, fresh taste of those four simple ingredients combined in the water is so delicious that I find myself emptying the pitcher each day and enjoying every ounce.
There are countless ways that this could be modified to meet your tastes.
Try replacing the cucumbers with sliced strawberries for a fruitier drink. Or substitute the lemon with limes.
Get creative and see what combinations you can come up with!
